About Us

I’m Rachel and I deliver a range of creative workshops in and around Richmond, North Yorkshire.

As a creative and designer/maker, I make a range of handmade crafts.  With a background in costume jewellery and silversmithing, I try to encompass all elements of my craft background into current projects.  I love learning new creative processes and spending time designing amd making for pleasure and relaxation.

I’m a self taught craftsperson in the fields of jewellery making, leather work and textile crafts.

Coffee, Cake and Craft has evolved from running craft workshops for hen parties and corporate days.   From 2014 to 2017 I delivered  craft workshops around the UK, via my business called 'Handmade Hen', which focused on craft hen parties.  Group sizes ranged from 6 to 25 women.  Previous to this, I ran jewellery and tiara making workshops in Kent and Lincolnshire.  Having run these for several years, I realised I wanted to deliver more personalised and informal sessions to smaller groups.  Therefore, I set up Coffee, Cake and Craft in January 2020.



I find crafting has a positive effect on my personal mental health and happiness.  It is well proven that creative activities improve and enhance the mental and emotional well-being of people. Creativity allows you to become 'present' and in turn focuses your mind on positive thinking.  Plus, it is fun and relaxing and is a great stress buster!

At our craft sessions, you'll  learn new skills, meet new people and there will be endless mugs of tea and coffee  and delicious cake!  You will leave the workshop feeling relaxed, stress-free and ready to start on your new craft skills at home.

Our full day workshops include a tasty 2 course meal, with a cake break in the afternoon too.  I use local food and cake makers to create delicious treats for you.

All materials and tools are included in the cost of the workshops - there are no 'extra's' to pay.
